Widow Ada Parsons has recently moved in with her sister
That sister is Annie Smith who is elderly, deaf and, to put it politely, excitable.
They keep getting visits from delivery man George Pearson who keeps bringing groceries they haven't ordered.
This surprises his friend Geoff Spencer who just happens to be Ada's son-in law.
His wife Rose Spencer is concerned about her mother,
Rose confides in Rita Reynolds an old friend
Rita works for Charles Robinson the solicitor who is helping Ada write her will.
